The Winchester 115 +P+ Illinois State PD had outstanding results also I spoke to one of the crime scene investigators on how the round did in the winter months no problems he said.
You do not think the 9mm is effective? Then let me shoot at you.

I'm a fan of the hornady critical defense, I've carried them in my 45, 40, and need to get some for my 9. The videos on YouTube impressed me.
Oth, I will never again buy federal hollowpoints. Worst feeding 9mm I've ever shot. The tip of the edge is really sharp and I believe that hinders its feeding.

I will be posting a series of videos on my youtube channel this summer regarding balistics. I will be doing more than just the typical "shoot into water jugs" testing.
I will be testing in the following situations:
shooting JHP through car doors and into balstic media
shooting JHP through Pylwood and into balstic media
shooting JHP through Drywall and into balstic media
shooting JHP through car windows and into balstic media
If you want your round tested feel free to post message me and we can work something out. I don't have the means to buy all the common hand gun rounds on the market to test them. I have the means to test every round except the .357sig.
I would love to test some Gold Dots, Hornady Critical Duty/Critical Defense, Federal, Winchester, Etc. Post message me. for more details or sugestions. I would be glad to test your round!

try some different brands and see what feeds with out jamming; bullet configs are like funny sometimes you never know what works

Update I shot some hornaday critical defense and federal 147gr hydrashock. I decided on the hydrashocks ands that's what I am carrying. Thanks for the tips hopefully this thread will help others as well.

Corbons 115+P jhp already has an excellent street record in stopping BG!
Here's a video showing the viewer the power of this ammo!

I've carried Winchester Ranger T,and Federal HST,but I just ordered Speer Gold Dots 124+P from sgammo,the GD's are designed to remain intact when going thru barriers such as auto glass etc.
